It is very common to be referred to as a 'Duck' in the East Midlands - and Nottingham is very much the capital of the East Midlands.

If someone is in their 50's or over it sounds quite quaint, but when a youngster says "Thanks Duck" it does sound a little odd.

Listen out for it.

P.S If you really are a duck, I'm not sure what the ettiquette is.
